Starbucks Launches New Lunch Menu
Always having the pre-lunch dilemma? Starbucks has just launched its new lunch menu, which is the perfect solution!
Made without artificial trans-fat, artificial coloring, or high fructose corn syrup, the revamped lunch menu comprises 16 mouth-watering options that will keep you satiated until your next meal. From baked pasta dishes to soups, to salads, sandwiches and wraps, there is always something to whet your appetite.
If you are looking for a well-balanced meal with just the right amount of greens, fiber, protein and carbohydrates, Angel Hair Truffle Pasta Salad is the answer. The al dente angel hair pasta is tossed on fragrant truffle and sakura shrimps and roe for an additional burst of seafood freshness. Laid on fresh green lettuce, with a side of mixed French beans, cherry tomatoes and olives, this dish ticks all the nutritional check boxes!
Other salads available are the Mixed Potato Salad and the Smoked Turkey Ham Salad with Asian Dressing.
Sandwiches and Wraps
Introducing three new gourmet sandwiches to the line-up, tastier than before – Caramelized Onion Beef Baguette, Tuscan Chicken Focaccia and Trio Mushroom Sandwich – you will be spoilt for choice.
Give the Tuscan Chicken Focaccia a go if you are looking for a refreshing meal. Juicy grilled Tuscan-style marinated chicken breast, topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes and cheddar cheese, served between flavorful, chewy yet soft focaccia bread – this is the sandwich to crave for.
If you’re looking to mix up your healthy food choices, go for one of these wholesome wraps – Smoked Salmon Tomato Wrap and Turkey Pastrami Whole Wheat Wrap – best to be enjoyed chilled.
Two new soup items that will satisfy the afternoon hunger pangs are also avaiable at selected stores. Refreshing and flavorful, the Tomato Basil Soup is a light lunch option. Topped with crunchy Sundried Tomato Croutons, you can experience a light crunch with every bite.
If you prefer something creamier and more filling, give the Seafood Chowder a try. This seafood & vegetable stew, filled with generous chunks of goodness from the ocean, including fish, mussels, clams, squids and prawns, is balanced with vegetables like onions, celery and potatoes.
Having a strong desire for a full pasta meal? There is a wide selection of meat and non-meat options ranging from their best-selling Beef Lasagna to Four Cheese Tortelloni in Tomato Cream Sauce.
Filled with four different kinds of cheese and balanced with tangy tomato sauce and cherry tomatoes, our savory Four Cheese Tortelloni in Tomato Cream Sauce is guaranteed to be a hit for cheese lovers!
Grab and Go
Pressed for time? Simply head to the “Grab and Go” section! There's a revamped line-up of the grab and go sandwiches – Ham, Cheese & Gherkin, Simply Tuna, Egg Béchamel with 7-Vegetable, and Chicken Yoghurt Brioche. Now you need not worry about getting to that post-lunch meeting or deadline late.
From 20 May for a limited time only, be treated to a free tall-sized iced coffee with any purchase from the lunch menu, ranging from Pasta Bakes, Gourmet Sandwiches to Wraps.
